Cosmetic Tattooing Procedures

I’m mostly known for my semi permanent make up, it’s by far my most popular treatment and over the last 6 year the SPMU industry has grown so much. With images being shared on social media everyone can see how amazing and natural the results can be. I always use the highest quality pigments and equipment and each year attend several training days with various accreditors to keep up with the industry’s latest technics and standards.
SemiPermanent make up, also known as micropigmentation, is a revolutionary method of inserting small amounts of pigment into the dermal layer of the skin in order to enhance a woman’s features.
This state-of-the art procedure has been used by models, actors, and entertainers as a means of enhancing their appearance. Madonna, Cher, Elizabeth Taylor, Angelina Jolie ,Gwen Stefani ,Shirley Bassey and even Prince are just a few of the celebrities that have chosen to have permanent cosmetics. Beyond the mere aesthetic value, with the savings in time, money, and daily frustration, it is easy to see why semi-permanent cosmetics have been called the “make up of the future.”

Semi-Permanent makeup typically consists of application of eyeliner, eyebrow simulation, and lip color. Additionally, there are semi permanent cosmetic makeup procedures for beauty marks, scar camouflage and areola reconstruction.

Wake up your eyes with eyelash enhancement or eyeliner. This procedure can dramatically define your eyes. With no worries of it smudging or disappearing through out the day.

Eyeliner defines and enhances the beauty of the eyes. It makes the lashes appear thicker, even when mascara is not worn.

To many people, the thought of never having to worry about smudging eyeliner ever again seems like a futuristic dream.

We offer two options for eyeliner. The first is called an enhancement and is a thin, naturally looking line along the lash line. Charmaine achieves this look by making several small dots along the lashes. The second option is the eyeliner and is for those looking for more of a make up look. Charmaine achieves this look by adding another line on top of the enhancement. Semi- Permanent eyeliner is delicately applied with a sterile applicator made specifically for fine, detailed facial work, utilizing the micro-pigmentation process. Colour is applied along both the upper and lower lash lines, creating a defined but soft radiance around the eyes. If a stronger look is desired, thickness of the color may be increased gradually over several sessions.

Wake up with beautiful brows that won’t smudge through out the day. Save yourself endless amounts of time not having to redraw your brows every morning. Go swimming with out worrying about people seeing you with no brows.

Eyebrows are so important they define the face, lack of brow can age you immensely or drawn incorrectly can leave you walking around with a sad, angry or surprised look.

Correctly shaped eyebrows can dramatically lift the face, making you look younger and feeling more confident.

Procedure: it’s a 2 part treatment, the first visit I book out an hour and a half so we have plenty of time to numb you up and draw your brows on to just how you like. We then discuss colour. And then when we are both happy I’ll begin. Implanting the pigment takes around 15-30 minuets, I’ll then talk you throw the aftercare and give you written instructions. I charge £220.

Your second visit is free. this is where I will check the colour, thickness and fill in any gaps. So on your first visit remember it’s always best to not go too thick or to dark as I can always thicken or darken on the second visit.

What to expect:

After I have finished you may have a little redness (like when threaded or waxed) for an hour or so. Your new brows will start to flake or scab a little. This normally last a few days to a week. It’s important to NOT pick or remove the flakes. Once the scabs have fallen off your new brows will look very pale this is because of a protective layer of skin on top of the pigment. Don’t worry they will come back 3-4 weeks in. As long as the flakes are off you can pencil them in. Week 4 you are ready for your top up. Don’t worry about any little gaps or imperfections this is why you are coming back in.

After you second treatment has healed all you need to do is protect them when in the sun (sun bathing/sun beds especially) and avid when exfoliating or having any sort of laser face treatment.

It’s normally around a year before you need a colour boost. You can let them fade away if you wish, you will need to pencil over the top as the colour fades it will change colour. This is normal and just the pigment breaking down. Just like with colouring your hair or having your nails done you need to boost them to keep them looking gorgeous.

A colour boost is £120.

Before a year I charge £80

Full lips are a sign of youth and ooze sex appeal. Wherever you look, be it TV, glossy magazines or on the catwalk, lips are full and sexy.
Let’s face it, if we had a choice, we would all have the perfectly defined mouth with a sensual vermillion border.

Whether are you looking for a natural, soft liner to enhance the border of your lips or whether you want a look that is more vibrant, thanks to semi-permanent makeup, all these cosmetic enhancements are now possible. With the ever increasing popularity of these specialist treatments, new pigments and advanced techniques have been developed to allow for creating that perfect look.

A short selection of what my clients think about me

Exceptional service right from consultation. Charmaine took the time to listen why I wanted my brows doing & what I had in mind. Booking my appointment was easy.
On the day of my treatment Charmaine and the team at Bodycraft looked after me, Charmaine ensured I was happy with my shape and welcomed my input throughout the treatment.
To say I was having my face tattooed it was an absolute pleasure!
Highly recommended, can’t wait to visit for my retouch!

Thank you Charmaine for my brows. I was so nervous about the microblading, how they’d look and the actual treatment...I’m so happy with them (literally only hours since having them done!). I guess that the process of them healing will see changes but I’m booked in for my 4 week top up in July and the actual technique and design used is spot on and professional. The brows look natural! And that was the outcome I was hoping to achieve. I feel like a new lady lol thank you so much Charmaine, I would recommend you 100%, the service and whole experience was spot on. X

Amy Jane Wesson

I cannot fault Charmaine. The whole service she offers is excellent and worth every penny. My eyebrows were patchy and thin due to severe overpluckage and she sorted me right out! I don’t know how I managed before! They are a beautiful shape, colour and thickness! I believe the term is “on fleek” as the ‘kids’ say. She takes her time and practices her craft with precision and care. Carefully mixing a perfect ink tone to suit my skin- not just out of the bottle and adjusting my brow shape to suit my wonky face. At the 4 week check up appointment, she made them even more beautiful. I cannot recommend her enough! I wouldn’t trust my face to anyone else. XXXX

My eyebrows have always been naturally odd and a funny shape. Because Charmaine is amazing, she managed to even them out and give me amazing perfect eyebrows that I don’t have to do anything to! I was really worried about the pain but she leaves you numbing for ages and was super gentle with me! Would Deffo recommend! Thanks Charmaine xxx

I have been going to Charmaine for a few years now and every time she is professional yet friendly, goes above and beyond to make sure you love the results and has a natural way of making you feel at ease and never in a rush however much you deliberate on colour or shape. I’ve had my brows done a few times and I think this is testament to how much I love them, I’d only trust Charmaine to do them, they are on your face after all and I’ve seen some horrific results from other practitioners. Definitely 5 stars! And thank you *****

Sam Hargreaves

Charmaine did my eyebrows on Monday this week after I bit the bullet about getting them done. I’d been let down previously by a salon, but speaking with Charmaine and reading reviews from previous clients I felt in safe hands. I’ve hardly any eyebrows left due to a medical condition and have drawn them on for nearly 15 years.
She was professional, friendly, honest and caring – she clearly loves what she does, and she does it very well. The pain was pretty much none exsistant; aside from feeling your eyeball vibrate every now and then and some slight pressure in your brow bone, that’s as uncomfortable as it gets! I’ve loved waking up each day this week with eyebrows, and now that the scabs are coming away I can’t wait for my top up! Thank you Charmaine ♥
